This last weekend the team kicked off their season at the 3rd annual Utah Valley Ashton Invitational tournament. We had 23 girls participate in the tournament and it was a great way to start our year. The Varsity team went 2-2 over the weekend playing some excellent competition from Springville, Skyridge, PG, and Orem. Shout out to our gals who filled in on two different Hybrid teams made up of various players from local schools who took on Varsity teams from around the state. We had a number a gals play in the JV tournament held at Corner Canyon over the weekend who all got in some great matches and held their own against solid competition.

Thanks to everyone who helped out with our Summer Lovin' Pickleball Tournament last Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! We had lots of gals and parents help out which was needed given how busy it was at the tournament. The tournament was a grand success with players coming in from Florida, North Carolina, Texas, and up and down the western US. We could not have held this tournament without everyone's help so thanks to those who donated their time and effort to the cause.

There will be a player/parent meeting this Tuesday @ 7:00pm. We will hold this meeting outside at our tennis courts (Court #1) to allow for social distancing. Each attendee needs to bring a chair to sit in (don't worry, it'll be in the shade). We will discuss a number of necessary items given the unique circumstances we're in.
The AF Tennis program is proud to help host a huge Pickleball Tournament this weekend, the Summer Lovin' Tournament. This will be our main fundraiser this year and we are looking for volunteers to help assist the tournament. We will need helpers each day, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday . . . especially Saturday. Check out the link below and check out the times, talk with friends to see what works for you all and sign up for at least one time slot.
Volunteer duties will include getting water, assisting in court assignments, and other errands. You won't be playing pickleball, but you'll be able to see all skills and levels.
Hit up Coach Herrud if you've got any questions
For Tuesday please attend the tryout time listed below. Bring lots and lots of water!
